The biggest yard sale weekend of the year is here!

It truly is a Maine tradition to spend a lazy Saturday, or Sunday, cruising all around various parts of the state, checking out yard sales.

As they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure, so with that in mind, there is a huge 3-day event coming up this weekend, that will satisfy the yard sale lover in you. Best of all, they are all in one area, so you can shop till ya drop.

You can celebrate Maine's 203rd and Orrington's 235th birthday at Orrington's Old Home Week, July 12th-July 14th. This week-long celebration starts with the Endless Yard Sale, and has a weekend full of fun events.

Over 100 households participated last year, covering over 70 miles of roads. Thousands of treasure seekers from as far away as Florida, came to find the best bargains, so you can expect the same this weekend.

The "Endless Yard Sale" will be held starting tomorrow, Friday, July 12th-Sunday, July 14th. Thousands of treasure seekers have made Orrington the best place in the State of Maine to find the most incredible bargains.
